When people refer to Trump as “America’s Racist-in-Chief”, Rep. Steve King is personally affronted. That’s HIS title, dammit! It’s not profiling when you Right-fully assume every person of color is inherently guilty…
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) on Monday defended former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona, who was convicted of criminal contempt of court for refusing to halt his immigration patrols but pardoned by President Trump.
“I don’t agree that profiling is wrong,” King told CNN’s Chris Cuomo…
“There’s a difference between racial profiling and broader profiling with all of the descriptions that are there,” King argued in the Monday night interview.
“And I say it’s wrong, too, and the Justice Department has issued a directive that says you shall not racially profile if that’s the only component.”
DISGUSTING AND HEARTLESS. Steve King on CNN going after #DACA children for not turning in their parents. What kind of person says that?

Americans used to criticize the Soviets for calling on children to inform on parents. https://t.co/rOeT1sH1Ne
